    Traffic's bad because people are driving to get to Tampa. It's weird because I literally live in a small town outside of a large city, in the same county too.

    Finally, someone's actually giving me insight I can use. Well...somewhat... I have had a few of my friends on FA offering up advice when they can, but it hasn't been as fruitful as what you just gave me. The issue with the colored pencils coloring unevenly has been evident to me for a while, but I didn't think about doing strokes like that. Thanks for pointing it out. :3

    Edit: on a side note, do you think colored markers would cover up strokes better? I was going to get some before along with my colored pencils, but they were just out of my price range at the time. Next time I'm out shopping, I'm thinking about picking them up.

    They typically occur either when water main breaks occur that don't get fixed in a timely manner, or naturally when it rains for long periods of time. It really varies. Did you hear about the sinkhole that happened nearly two years ago outside of Tampa that engulfed someone? That made international news.

    I usually check traffic before I leave home, since I don't have a data plan on my smartphone. Either that, or wait for the report on the radio.

    Down here we have sinkholes, flooding (when it rains in one spot for 1-2 hours nonstop), and water main breaks! :D those are fun when having to deal with detours and thus slowing traffic down because people didn't watch the news/look at the traffic report on their smartphone.

    You really lucked out in that situation right there. That reminds me: about a month ago, I was riding with a friend to the mall, and she could have gotten hit. A car was veering into a straight lane (our lane) from the left-hand turn lane at an intersection. My friend got over, and luckily nobody was coming to prevent the accident. The car that wasn't paying attention was a black Dodge Charger with dents all along the right side from bumper to bumper.

    React? That was the series of vids where they show people reacting to random things, right? Not sure, I think I only saw one video with the title React and I just didn't get what it was about.

    Oh, um, I've been drawing again... This time I've been experimenting with inking pens/markers. I actually just finished a picture I'm really proud of (in terms of how it looks in general...it's nothing super-high quality, but enough to where I feel a lot better about using ink from now on). Care to give me some input: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15154472/ Personally, I'm thinking it'd have looked really phenomenal if I used colored markers instead of colored pencils for the finished product, but the latter's all I have on hand atm.

    I guess you've just been lucky with drivers around you. I only have to lay on my horn when it's an absolute must, and sometimes it really is.

    The closest encounter I had was headed northbound at one road, and there was a car turning left onto the cross road from the southbound side. A car was on the cross road wanting to go straight westbound. As soon as the car made the turn, the car going straight started to proceed when I was going, and I had to slam on my brakes then and come to a complete stop to prevent an accident. I of course laid on the horn for a few good seconds there.

    Have you ever had to lay on your horn for other peoples's stupidity though? There's this one intersection on Highway 301 here where 301 has no stop signs but this side road does, and people always insist on pulling out onto 301 literally 25-50 feet in front of the car they're pulling out in front of. It's annoying, because most drivers have to slam on their brakes to let the person in front. As I've told others: if you have to tap your brakes while going past an intersection, then that person probably should not have done what they did."

    Drivers are bad everywhere. I mean, I will say that I'm not excluding myself from that sentence considering I've been in an accident, but people are just always so inconsiderate when on the road.

About Me

  • About Nolafus
    Biography
    My guess is that you saw my bold blue name and wanted to know a bit more about me. Well, you've come to the right place!

    As far as pokemon goes, my first game was Black. My parents didn't want me engulfed by the franchise when I was young, so they never let me do anything pokemon. I felt like I was missing out, bought Black on a school band trip my sophomore year of high school, and I've been hooked ever since. A word of warning, since I came into the franchise so late, I have a tendency to mix up my earlier generations, so please be a little understanding in regards to that.

    I do enjoy competitive battling, and I dare say that my grass team and NU team are pretty good! So, if you ever want to battle, drop me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you. Since I don't have wifi at my house, it will have to be on Showdown. I'm almost always up for a battle or two, so don't be shy about asking.

    As far as non-pokemon stuff goes, I also enjoy writing. Well, it's kind of obvious at this point, but I really do enjoy it. I think it would be amazing to become a professional writer someday, and I'm giving my best shot at it. I have yet to send anything out to publishers, mainly because I'm a bit too nervous to take that step, but I hope to send something out soon. Now whether that actually gets published is a different story, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

    If you're interested in writing, don't be afraid to leave me a message! I love getting mail, and it would be awesome to hear from you. If you have any questions about the writing craft, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. I'm still sort of new to writing, when compared to some of you old folk, but I'm pretty confident in my abilities.

    I've been modding FF&W ever since November 8th, 2013, and I really enjoy it. I get to help people develop their skills and be in a community with fellow writers. What's better than that?
    Interests
    I also like roller coasters and I play the trumpet, french horn, mellophone (a french horn for marching band), and flugel.

Okay, so this is my response to Dakota's blog. I was tagged by Zach, and I thought this would be a fun thing to do. Dakota's blog explaining what this all is can be found here:

No longer will you have to continuously visit your blog over and over again, hoping someone has come by and helped you with your essay. Now, you can do the exact same thing, but with a thread in FF&W! Thanks to the new [Nonfiction] prefix, your essays, opinion papers, and creative nonfiction now have their own happy, little home surrounded by other literature pieces where they belong. So, next time you have an essay for school, or just wrote an essay for fun (hey, I can't be the only one who...

Alright, so many of you have noticed that I have started a sign-up for a creative writing class. For those of you that haven't noticed, then read on!

Since I think school does a terrible job of teaching creative writing and several people have expressed their interest in it, I'm going to be attempting to teach a creative writing right here on PC. I certainly don't know everything about writing, so this is just going to be an introductory course. Everything you need to know about this...

Hello everyone!

Some of you know that I have been off at a writing conference for the past few days. I'm heading back tomorrow, but insomnia strikes tonight, so I may as well write about it now. I'm just going to tell you about what I learned about not just writing, but about the writers themselves.

The more and more panels I went to, the more and more I learned something. Now, these panels were about a huge variety of topics ranging from asking how many readers is...

Before I start, I would just like to say that I don't actually want to be a garbage man when I grow up. Before you ask me why I chose the title, let me ask you a question first. Why did you click on this blog? What prompted you to read this entry while you could be doing a thousand different things? There are several answers to this simple question. Some of you clicked on this simply because I'm your friend and friends are more likely to read friend's stuff. However, I hope there's another reason...
